(Almost) Wordless Wednesday: Famous Breastfeeding Magazine Covers & Photos

by Bettina Forbes, CLC | May 12, 2010 4:21 pm

A nude, expecting Demi Moore on the cover of Vanity Fair, captured by Annie Leibovitz, sparked a cultural acceptance of pregnancy and launched a booming maternity and “mommy & me” industry.   Since that worked so well to mainstream pregnancy, would it work to mainstream breastfeeding?  If so, how can we get more magazines to take the plunge and put breastfeeding pictures on the cover or in the issue itself?   (By the way, Demi Moore, Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears all breastfed.)  We think that such images would go a long way towards normalizing breastfeeding in our culture so breastfeeding mothers are not harassed for breastfeeding in public.   Do you think it would help to reach the mainstream with more images that the mainstream relates to:  slick, glamorous photos of celebrities?

Update: Just remembered that Eva Herzigova breastfed in the German Magazine Bunte, check out this fabulous post with lots of pix (scroll down for the breastfeeding ones) from Celebrity-babies.com in 2007, posted by breastfeeding-friendly founder Danielle Friedland. (She since sold the site to People.com and is now a certified lactation consultant!)
